The Colorado Low-income Energy Assistance Program (LEAP) is a federally funded program that helps eligible Colorado families, seniors and individuals pay a portion of their winter home heating costs.
LEAP helps keep communities warm during the winter (November through April) by providing assistance with heating costs, equipment repair and/or replacement of inoperable heating tools. While the program is not intended to pay the entire cost of home heating, LEAP aims to help alleviate some of the burdens that come with Colorado's colder months.
For applications, please contact 303-670-7550 to reach Stephanie McCaulley at 1969 Miner Street, Idaho Springs or 303-679-2364 to reach Tracy Troia at 405 Argentine Street, Georgetown.
Did you know that Clear Creek County residents can also get help with weatherization and energy efficiency upgrades? These opportunities are provided through two programs, the Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) and Colorado’s Affordable Residential Energy Program (CARE). Current LEAP participants may automatically qualify for the WAP and CARE program, which can assist them to have warmer homes and lower energy bills. Visit the Forum page here, for more information.
